Innocent Onyebuchi, the ace Nigerian singer better known as Daddy Fresh, has opened up about his health struggles.


In a video shared by Nelson Brown, his producer, on social media, the singer said he has been battling a partial stroke for over two years.

He said he kept his pain hidden, believing he could overcome it alone.

He said all his resources went into treatment of the condition which has recently worsened. Fresh also appealed for help from fans.


‘‘I am diagnosed with partial stroke,” he said, adding that he was at high risk of kidney failure and prostate problems.

“I have been facing this for over two years, and I was handling it on my own, believing it would not take this long, but my purpose in God disposes. Right now, as it is for me, it is hitting me so hard that I could not imagine.

“I need your help, and I am soliciting for help right now because I have exhausted all I have on me. Despite being on the bed, I still try to reach other people who are in need and passing through their pains. The difference is I hide my own from people because I believe I will be able to handle it.”


Daddy Fresh was a founding member, lead vocalist, and songwriter of the famous 90s music group ‘DE Pretty Busy Boys’.

The group included music stars such as Daddy Showkey, Cashman Davies, and Sexy Pretty.

He is renowned for songs like ‘Elerugbe erue’, ‘Faka Fiki faka’, and ‘Fiji fa’.
